The release of Jussie Smollett’s case files could have huge complications for the actor.
According to Hollywood Reporter, Hundreds of pages of documents in the Jussie Smollett case, including emails, text messages, police reports, and court records had been released to the public last week.

“N***a you still got a molly connect,” Smollett texted them in September. “Hahahaha… Imma need a good fo pills Haha.”
